Want to feel like a kid again? Take a plunge into a cold mountain stream on a hot summer day. Shenandoah Mountain Guides specializes in this sort of time travel with its cascading trips in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park. Cascading combines hiking and swimming to get you off the beaten path to some of the most secluded waterfalls. Wade through crystal-clear pools, hop from boulder to boulder, and swim laps at the base of 40-foot cascades. Take it up a notch with a secure rappel off one of those picturesque falls.
